Flobots presents Together We Rise: Live From the Trenches, two shows at the Oriental Theater on election night, Tuesday, November 3; for those preferring to stay inside, the show will also be live-streamed. Also, Magic Beans launches Arise Music Festival's Arise Online with a virtual concert on Thursday.

Keep in mind that with the City of Denver's latest COVID-19 regulations limiting indoor gatherings, it's more important than ever to call ahead to make sure concerts are still happening. Here's our list of the best concerts of the week:

Tuesday, November 3, 6 p.m.
Oriental Theater

Flobots, which just reissued its debut EP, Platypus, and welcomed back original guitarist Andy "Rok" Guerrero, plays two shows on Election Night. In addition to performances by the band, there will be special guests, as well as election coverage and conversations with the musicians and community leaders. The night will also be live-streamed (tickets are $8 to $15).

Griffin House
Wednesday, November 4, and Thursday, November 5, 8 p.m.
Soiled Dove Underground, 7401 East 1st Avenue
